is doing so were better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs and mitt romney has a land that is pro growth and pro jobs and president obama doesn't. when you look at the last four years they are disappointed. we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression, there are 22 million americans struggling to find works and 3.5 million more women in poverty. take home pay has gone down $4,300 per family. president obama has the glossy brochure and i have looked at that brochure and i layed this role of obama during the debate preparation and it is more of the same. you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and it hasn't worked by president obama's own measurement, saying unemployment would be 15 percent lower if we passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth today would be two-thirds higher than it is. so, it hasn't worked. the one thing he does have in his new proposal is to raise taxes. yes, he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot in ohio, and that will result, according to a study by
states. republican rob portman of ohio, who played president romney in the debate represent and 18 electoral votes are in play en a state obama won in '08, by 4.6 points and now leads 2.3 points in the latest real clear politics average of recent polls and republican ron johnson of wisconsin, 10 electoral votes at stake and obama won by almost 14 points, last time, and, is now leading by 2.3. and democrat mark warner of virginia, obama won its 13 electoral votes by 6 points, four years ago and now is tied with romney. and, democrat mark udall of colorado, obama won the 9 electoral votes last time by nine points and the race there is now dead even. senator portman, let's start with the state i guess most people think may decide the race, that is ohio. the obama camp says they have the big edge in early voting in your state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country, and the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris, first of all, you mentioned the real clear politics average in ohio, 2.3%, in the president's favor and now it is 1.9%, actually because the poll
it center of the political universe is ohio. president obama and governor romney are locked in a tight race to reach the magic number of 270 votes and ohio could tip the scames one way or the other. that's why the candidates are putting time and effort in the buck eye state . joining me senior political analyst for the washington examiner michael moran. >> good to be with you. >> this election may come down to ohio. what does romney have to do to win the state. >> he has to win over a lot of afluent voters necessary suburbian areas that haven't voted republican in the last couple of presidential election. areas with which republicans used to win but trended democratic over the last 20 years. on the cultural issues and he has to win them over economic and stewardship and foreign policy get the white nonblue collar. obama campaign baraged ohio with ads. biggest anti-romney ads he's outsourced job to china and he fired me and my wife got cancer and all of that sort of thing. they have seen it in ohio and white noncollege voters in ohio are considerably not likely to support romney than in othe

to give up. ohio has been an obama advantage in the polls for many, many days. romney campaign say they have caught up. new poll out from ohio, consortium of newspapers that mr. romney's momentum is not an actual tie at 49-49 apiece. >> harris: carl cameron, literally from the road. once again we'll carry that event live in ohio with governor romney and paul ryan coming up. >> gregg: sit down and put on your seat belts. making me nervous. >> massive cover-up or incompetence? very strong words from senator john mccain on the administration's handling on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya that killed four americans including our u.s. ambassador. mrz lawmaker calling for the immediate release of all surveillance video gathered during that deadly attack. national security correspondent jennifer griffin joins us live with the late. what requests went unanswered according to your sources? >> remember, my source was on the ground at the c.i.a. annex. i'm told about 9:40 when the first shots were heard, woods and other operators asked the c.i.a. base chief for permission to
. obama has a 73.6% chance of winning. it's hard to imagine a romney victory without winning ohio. okay. everybody is in ohio. it's such a bizarre undertaking to go through the map and everyone now has these nice interactive things. is that your sense of the race? my sense of the race is that it's very hard to see it not coming down to ohio if we are sitting down on election night figuring out what the call is going to be made, it looks like ohio is going to determine it. you have been around the country. i'm just curious, what sort of the mood has been in different swing districts that you have been in? you are active in all parts of the country. >> we have been active in a number of battleground states. i have most recently been to ohio and new hampshire. the mood is different depending on the day and where you go. one of the things i did not find to be true is mitt the momentum. i think what we saw in the aftermath of the first debate was romney folks feeling like it was all of a sudden okay to be proud to be out as romney voter. >> true. >> i did not see that before that. i think th
, governor romney had some expected rallies that are planned for virginia in ohio there may be a whole lot of snow to content with while folks on the east coast are dealing with wind and rain. let's get a better view of this big storm now kind of threatening a good portion of the east coast. our chad myers with me now, so chad, we're talking about these pre-emptive declarations of states of emergency. >> sure. >> and in large part, to really send a serious message to people that you don't need to be complacent, yes it's a category 1, but really anything can happen with this storm. >> it also gives the authorities, the police and the fire some specific extra ability to move people if they need to. like our where our sandra endo is-seaside beach. all 35 milislands, you have got be out of the island. we saw some of the our live shots, the center of this storm is still some 300 miles from kill devil hills. it's 500 miles from indianapolis. 350 miles from the center and out, you're going to have 350 miles south as the storm drives itself into long island, into new jersey or possibly down toward
romney 44%. i want to show you another poll that shows that 92% of folks likely voters in ohio say they have already made up their minds. is the table set in ohio? >> well, i think it is, but, candy, let me say to the governor and to all those that are going to be affected by the storm, ohio, we wish them the best, and i know the governor will do everything possible to make sure his state and his citizens are well cared for, and i -- you know, my heart goes out to him and to others who are dealing with these very difficult circumstances. in regard to ohio, we are going to get some of the remnants of this storm, but it's going to be a great week in ohio. i think politically. both candidates are going to be here, and it's going to be a hard fought campaign, but the good news from my perspective is that president obama has maintained a small but a very consistent lead in ohio. i don't know of any poll that has shown the president not leading over the last few months, as a matter of fact. >> do you think it counts for the rise of independence? >> we have a good ground operation. >> wha
events scheduled for today in virginia. instead romney will be campaigning in ohio and wisconsin tomorrow. this afternoon, romney and his running mate power ryan held a rally in toledo, ohio, governor romney touting his business experience, repeatedly promising to bring back jobs. >> i didn't just read about small business, i didn't just study it in school. i lived small business. i know what it's like to start a business. i want to use the experience to help people get more businesses started, get more jobs, get higher take-home pay. >>> as we mentioned, the president in washington, d.c. earlier today. but he will try to leave for florida this afternoon. we're told the obama campaign canceled scheduled events this week. in northern virginia. of course there was supposed to be the rally with bill clinton and prince william county. canceling an event in colorado springs. colorado due to the hurricane as well. meanwhile in battleground ohio, the race now officially a dead heat. this is the latest poll from the cincinnati inquirer and ohio news organization. it shows the president and govern
. the romney campaign's very excited about that. but there are places where he has never been in the lead, ohio, wisconsin. how do you think there will be a last-minute turn that benefits him? >> in ohio, we started 7, 8 points down a month ago and we closed it to 5, 3 and as you said this morning, it's dead evening. when you look at our ground game, there is no question that not only do we have the momentum, the work on the ground will take us over the top. what you have seen is that the democrats like to put out numbers about the early vote and there is no question, they do a better job, early voting, but hayare not doing as good of a job as they did in 20 where are 8 or a -- 2008. >> how does this work in the final days? you have resources, but they're limited. you can't blanket adads with all 50 states. how do you stied what is a lock for governor romney or what is unwinnable and how you reroute? >> right. we are definitely ahead in florida, north carolina, virginia. we are doing -- >> shannon: virginia's pretty tight their though. >> when you look internally, we feel very good about the wa
in that key state. ohio's g.o.p. senator rob portman says the momentum in that state is going in romney's direction. >> i have been at 6 of the rallies over the last week, i have been at about a dozen victory centersarn the state and the energy and enthusiasm's on our side. it's really interesting to watch. but, look, we were down 5 to 10 points before the debate. after the debate, we are about dead even and it's moving our way. >> reporter: the first romney/ryan event starts in a couple of hours today. >> shannon: thank you very much. keep it here. in the next hour, i will ask the virginia republican governor, how canceling three campaign evens in his state could affect romney's chances there. we have been seeing a lot of political ads on tv, but if you live in a swing state, you may be overwhelmed and sick of them. we want to know, if you live in a swingswing state, are you tired of the ads, phone calls and polling, if not, do you feel like you recall being ignored? hurricane sandy, the super storm is pounding the east coast. peter doocy is live in reboboth beach, delaware. hello. >>
and pennsylvania anyway. and, look, in ohio, which the republicans have to win, romney has to win, where barack obama is still leading, still leading wisconsin and iowa and nevada. that is his fire wall, and unless romney can break through that he won't win the election. >> his fire wall used to include florida and virginia and they're not talking about that as fire wall states anymore with romney ahead in florida. the very fact that michigan and pennsylvania, which obama carried by 16 points and 10 points four years ago -- have gotten close i think has to be an indication that the affluent suburbs, oakland, macomb, livingston in michigan, have been moving towards romney in a significant way, and i think that the democrats are giving you static analysis there. and i think there may be a dynamic at work here. the affluent suburbs are places that people generally tend to turn out in large numbers, and we've seen signs that republicans have more enthusiasm this year. i think one reason ohio is closer is that affluent suburban counties are only an eighth of the statewide votes and a warsmer michiga
. he had three, count 'em, three separate events there just yesterday. today romney is in ohio with vice presidential candidate paul ryan. and in florida, romney kept hammering home his message of a failed passed four years. >> he's asked what he's going do to get this economy going. we've had four debates, three presidential, one vice presidential. have you heard him lay out a plan yet as to what he's going to do to get this economy going? >> no! >> he wants four more years, but he's got no agenda. ♪ >> tonight want to let you know we'll bring you a special inside look at both these candidates. mitt romney revealed: family, faith, and the road to power. that's coming your way at 8:00 tonight eastern. and it will be followed by "obama revealed: the man, the president." you will get to see both candidates behind the scenes like never before tonight on cnn. >>> quite a scare for the family of florida republican senator marco rubio. while the senator was out campaigning with mitt romney, his daughter was involved in an accident involving a golf cart. she is 12 years old. she's a
's a credible way -- ohio is very important and would make it harder for romney to win if he didn't win ohio but if he takes wisconsin and colorado, he's got more votes than he would in ohio. so it would -- it's going to be fascinating to watch. also, iowa comes into play, another close state. the des moines register endorsed romney, the first time they endorsed a republican candidate for president since richard nix non1972 so that's a big deal. >> got a gut feeling? >> yeah, but i save that for las vegas. >> all right, chris. good to see you. it's going to be a fascinating tuesday night in nine days. >> you bet. can't wait. >> absolutely. for more on chris's interviews with senators from the key battleground states, "fox news sunday's" got them for the latest upcoming election discussions. republican senators rob portman, ron johnson, senators warner and udal ll. fox news sunday has it all at 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. eastern here on fox as we gear up for the final stretch. >> we better gear up for hurricane sandy because she, i believe this one is a she, is on a crash course for the jersey s
have ohio. >> so the president has traveled to that state at least 24 times, mitt romney somewhere more than 40 times this year alone. both of them clearly know it's a very important state. but at this juncture, as the two still will descend on ohio with just a few days before election day, if everything goes according to plan, what do ohioans need to hear from them? >> i think they need assurance from the president that things will get better. things are bad, everyone knows that, but that they'll improve, that the worst is over, if he can convey that effectively. governor romney needs to continue to persuade voters that obama has had his four years, it's time for new leadership. they're both making that case and it's really about getting those voters who have made up their minds or who are really close to voting for one or the other out to the polls. >> what about the undecideds? we keep hearing about the undecide undecideds? is there a particular populace there in ohio? >> it's about 1%. >> so the northern part of that state is one that would traditionally vote more republican. it see
, which is clearly a momentum shift towards mitt romney. if you look at the state of play in ohio, for example, you know, a month ago we were seven points down. a couple weeks later we were five, three. some of them showing even today in the morning, so, i mean, when you have the momentum and you are a challenger in a tie race, the challenger wins in the tie race. >> he is correct that those absentee ballots coming in and the early voting, particularly in ohio and now apparently in florida, do heavily favor the president. does that surprise you? what's your pushback? >>le with, the -- there are two different types of early voting. there's absentee ballot mail voting, which we're ahead, and then there's early voting, which they're add, but what they're not telling you bsh they're telling you where we're ahead in early voting. what they're not telling you is that they are a fraction of where they were in 2008. they're not where they were in 2008. we're far ahead of where we were in 2008. we're going to be -- you know, our ground game is better than their ground game. we are going to
is in maryland. there he is. excuse me, marion, ohio, traveling with the romney campaign. give us a quick update. this has really changed the plans for mitt romney and for president barack obama but what are you hearing from the romney camp? >> reporter: well, don, i'll tell you right now the romney campaign is feeling very optimistic, not only looking at those national polls, if you look at our latest cnn poll of polls mitt romney leading nationally over the president, but in ohio our latest cnn/orc, even though it shows the president with a healthy lead there, it is still within the margin of error and mitt romney has played some serious catch-up. there's another poll that came out a consortium of ohio newspapers that shows the race tied in this state. the romney campaign is feeling pretty good but the "x" factor in everything right now from now until election day, the last nine days of this race, all hinges on hurricane sandy at this point. an election that was already uncertain and unpredictable is now only worse. just in the last hour, don, we can tell you the president has gob gone ahead a
of endosment. >> reporter: and governor romney is scheduled to arrive at this event in marion ohio. the president is already en route to florida, that's a day earlier than planned, so he can be present for an event scheduled for tomorrow. >> peter thanks. we had planned to be here in virginia all along as part of our continuing tour of battleground key states in this election. this storm did not figure into anyone's election plans b u it is adding drama in states both candidates need badly to win. with virginia and it's 13 electoral votes very much in play, the storm threatens to knock both campaigns off their game plan, the candidates have cancelled their appearances here and officials are already considering the impact of power outages possibly lasting through election day. >> our goal right now is to make sure that no one is disenfranchised or denied their ability to vote because of the weather so we have moved up to the very top of the list, the restore ration of power for voting precincts. >> virginia is a traditionally important prize. in 2008, barack obama defied gravity and
been out stumping for mitt romney. you have been in ohio, which is a state pivotal for the upcoming election. many people talk about it as the state that may decide the election. some say obama has the lead to a bear. the jobs picture is improving their. how do you think things are going there for governor romney? do you think it is possible he could win o hi a? >> i may two trips to ohio -- the think it is possible for him to win ohio? >> i made two trips to ohio. there is a wave of taking over state house state senate and state legislatures. you hampshire is the same way. they have 2/3 of the senate and 2/3 of the house is republican. in ohio, kasich wins by a couple of points, but they take over the state house and the state senate. a win 10 out of 18 congressional seats. we are projecting things, you cannot go from 2008 and 2010 and say we are went back to 2008 before we get to 2012. it is a direct line from 2010 to get to 2012. of the polls are underestimating where we will be. my prediction is that this will be 1918. this will be an election that was projected to be close. --
